Baby Afghan

My girlfriend, Erin, had her first baby girl this month and I made her this black and white afghan for her nursery.
Several people commented on what a bad idea a black blanket was so I took a picture of it with her bedding to prove to everyone that it looks just perfect.
I love her colors she used in the nursery and I was happy to contribute to the cuteness of her room. I used a popcorn stitch and did a shell around the edge in white. I couldn't find any baby soft yarn in black so I used Hobby Lobby's Love This Yarn brand. It crocheted well, it is reasonably priced and I think I'll use it again. Try it out.

Pin It!


  1. I have made several baby blankets out of a wonderful soft yarn called "Simply Soft". I have found the yarn at Walmart's, Michaels, and Joann's. It holds up wonderful and babies just snuggle right into it! Happy New Year!

  2. Very cute nursery! Black and white are always stylish.
